    Unhappy Just a painful cold?

    My throat hurts. When I take a deep breathe I cough violently and it's not as easy to breath. When I blew my nose my ears poped and it hurt really bad. My mother says it's just a cold but I've never had a cold this bad. I do get ear infections regularly so I'm not as worried about my ears...but my throat is killing me. It doesn't hurt to eat, but I've been drinking water because my throat burns. Water doesn't help though. Is this just a cold? Should I be worried?

    Also I have a temp. of 99 and a slight headache.

    Get a flashlight and look in the mirror. Stick out your tongue and say "aaah." If there are nasty white patches on your throat, go to the doctor for antibiotics. Otherwise, it probably is just a nasty cold.

    Gargling with warm salt water can ease the pain a little. Hang in there!
